Head of Sixth Form’s Welcome

We are a small Catholic Sixth Form, warmly welcoming students of all faiths and beliefs. We take great pride in the education that we offer, the support provided and the guidance given to our students to help them develop into a well-balanced individual which enables them to succeed academically.

Our Sixth Form is a happy and vibrant community which encourages students to become confident, engaged and articulate young adults and our students achieve consistently good examination results enabling them to move on to their chosen path. St Benedict’s believes in education with character and there is a range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities on offer to support students in developing essential life skills. Our curriculum will equip them with the knowledge and understanding required for successful progression to higher education, apprenticeships and the workplace and a range of opportunities and experiences outside the classroom will inspire, build self-esteem and the confidence to achieve.

 

St Benedict’s Sixth Form has always been a place where the individual matters; all students are part of our family. Throughout their time here they will be stimulated, broaden their horizons and step out of their comfort zones, whilst maintaining their integrity and compassion. We warmly invite you to our Open Evening on 17th November where you can see our Sixth Form and speak with teachers to find out more about our offer.

St Benedict’s continues to compete on the global stage

STUDENTS at St Benedict’s in Alcester have achieved some stunning results in this year’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) with three Sixth Form students scoring in the Top 10 per cent worldwide.

Head of Sixth Form Donna Munford said: “All our IB students should be congratulated for their hard work over the past two years.

“We are delighted for them all, and three students excelled with scores of 40 or above out of the maximum 45 putting them among the very best of all students that study the IB in 144 countries around the world. An outstanding achievement!”

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is recognised by universities and employers for the way it combines academic rigour with real world skills in a global context.

However with exams cancelled this year due to Covid-19, staff and students had been apprehensive as to how grades were to be calculated.

Fortunately, all students had produced coursework which was submitted to the IB and grades were calculated from this work along with predicted grades.

“Staff and students should feel proud of their hard work and commitment.

“This year has provided us with many challenges, but the hours of work, care and guidance have paid off,” added Mrs Munford.

The International Baccalaureate is a world class qualification offering a wide breadth of education across nine subjects rather than the narrower approach of A Levels.
